We’ve recently launched our Job Board and it’s been incredibly satisfying to see all the traffic and referrals being handed out every single day – in fact, we get so many requests daily now that it’s honestly hard to keep up with it (this is always the problem of starting a new property). And for those that are in a “startup” mode, like many freelancers and contractors out there, you’re always open to more work and more opportunity. That’s why Envato’s recent announcement is a really good one:
A couple of weeks ago, we detailed a workshop that I’ll be hosting starting this Thursday in which I’ll be covering everything you need to know in order to build WordPress plugins. Specifically, the course is going to cover the following topics: Setting up a local development environment Planning the plugin Developing the plugin And preparing the plugin for release We’ll also be covering things like object-oriented programming techniques, the WordPress Coding Standards, and more. With the event starting this Thursday, Envato – one of our partners – has offered an exclusive deal to WP Daily readers: 25% off the course […]
When it comes to WordPress, one of the most exciting things about the platform is the variety of ways of which we can develop products on top of it. Aside fro the typical blog, there are options for theme development, plugin development, and even application developer. If you’re a budding WordPress developer and have a desire to learn to write a WordPress plugin from the ground up, then you’ve gotta check out the Envato workshop being held by our very own Tom McFarlin later this month.
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day which means that every married man with kids (well, not all of them…) is fretting about doing something legit tomorrow. I’ll probably be at my local Target early tomorrow trying to find some crappy Mother’s Day card that means little more than the ridiculous $4.99 that I will pay for it. Hm… I can do better (and so can you)! Ok, but before that, enjoy our weekly roundup. 🙂
There’s been a thought brewing in the back of my mind for a couple years now, and after reading Give Back, It’s our Responsibility, Opportunity just a few weeks ago, I felt compelled to write about it. I’m talking about collaboration over competition, that we’re all in it together.
Hate your job? Not exactly super-stoked about where your life might be headed in your current vocation? You’re not alone. Many of us are stuck in dead-end jobs that are incredibly difficult to be passionate about. In fact, you may audibly groan every time the alarm clock awakes you in the morning. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Honestly, I’ve seen more people start doing this thing called “web development” during their current 9-to-5 job and start not only loving it but making a serious living off of it. And WordPress is where it’s at. You can plug yourself […]
Those Envato guys keep rolling out newer and greater things! They have grown incredibly fast over the last few years and it doesn’t appear that they’ll be stopping for a break anytime soon. But this new development is really getting me excited because it really hits the heart behind why we do things here at WP Daily – which is education and helping others achieve great success with WordPress. This new “hub” will be a central location for all of the Tuts+ Network. It’s a new platform that will make it easier for readers to find tutorials, articles, and more. […]
